Popular Books Zeus Is Dead: A Monstrously Inconvenient Adventure Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.If there is an award for being the most well-researched smart-ass, I think Michael G. Munz would take the prize. And I mean that with the most adoring and praise-inducing admiration I can manage. While I'll try not to polish the author's ego too much, this book quickly rose through my level of favorites with it's wit, geekiness, and careless disregard of the ever prevalent fourth walls; Zeus is Dead is clever, yet entertaining in a manner that made it hard to put down. If you like Greek Mythology, humor, and ridiculous plot lines common in stories like Monty Python or Space Balls, you might like this book. It may be a love it or hate it sort of project, but I thankfully was one of the former readers.Now that I've gushed a little bit, and possibly lost a few readers for using the term "smart-ass" in my review, I guess I should take some time to actually talk about the work. The first thing I should probably warn you is this is not a "linear" sort of story-line. If you want to go from point A to point B, this may not be the book for you. Part of the fun of this story is the careless side-trips we encounter along the way. One minute you're talking about the gods return to power, the next a clumsy, poorly trained ninja is tripping in the forest and being rewarded with glitter paper. While the main characters are important, so is some of the silly none-sense thrown in on the side. I'd liken some of the side-trips to the book Stardust; you never know what will turn out to be relevant later.This book works because it embraces the ridiculousness. Yet, there is still a story that carries you through it. There are a few moments of language and poking fun that happen that may offend a few readers, but it is a story involving Greek gods, so that may be a given in those aspects. To be honest, there were probably some jokes that went over my head at times, but I never felt to bogged down by them. It was fun, yet balanced, which is something that is pretty difficult to manage. I liked that the gods in this story were still "human" on many levels. They didn't feel fearfully overpowered, their misadventures kept me entertained, as well as their modern adaptions in comparison to their more historical counterparts. It really did bring a fresh twist to some old subject matter. And adorable kitten monsters of death. Can I keep one?This is one of those books that is less about the ending, and more about the journey along the way. I'm not sure I wanted to reach the end, to be honest. I was having a little too much fun giggling along the way.
